Re: [PATCH] Project Templates


Hi Dick,

Sorry, I don't think I'm going to get around to it in any reasonable
time. I'm literally flat out here with a million things.

However, I documented the templates in the code. If you rebuild the
doxygen-docs target you'll see a Project Templates page in the
documentation which describes what files are required, naming
conventions and the like. All the information should be there.

If not, let me know and I'll see what's missing from the document.

Best Regards, Brian.
